AFAIK, in RH8 X was reniced to -10 by default.  In RH9 it wasn't.  I
suppose this is what you refer to.  People tell me though that the
renicing of X itself was a workaround for a scheduler "bug" that should
get solved by the "interactivity" set of patches.

If I'm wrong about this then please put me in my place because I too
hate for my RH desktop to be so damn laggy all the time when it comes to
sound.
